From Me to You: The Power of Storytelling and Its Inherent Generational Wealth

In this episode, I speak with Deidra R Moore Janvier, Esq. about her new book, From Me to You: The Power of Storytelling and Its Inherent Generational Wealth.

From Me to You is the answer to one crucial question: “So, Mom, what exactly was slavery about?” asked the author’s young son after learning of the atrocities of the Holocaust and slavery. Faced with the formidable challenge of answering her son’s question, Deidra devoted herself to exploring African American history with the end goal of creating a teachable moment. Starting with Ida B. Wells and ending with President Barack Obama, From Me to You features illustrations and short biographies of the most prominent 19th and 20th-century civil rights activists, centering their voices with quotes and affirmations anchored in the time in which they lived. Through stories about family, faith, and the power of multigenerational unity, From Me to You explores the legacy of slavery in America from the viewpoint of enslaved Africans and their descendants. Deidra proves that African American history is American history and that these two concepts rely on each other for posterity.

Author Deidra R. Moore-Janvier, Esq. exemplifies the Bronx area. As an African American mother, wife, and advocate for change, Deidra set out on a journey in 2020 to teach young minds “the value in investing in themselves and in learning about their history.” Deidra is no stranger to self-investment. As a single mother in 1996, she quit her job to attend law school. Upon graduating from the City University of New York School of Law (CUNY School of Law), Deidra worked as a public defender with The Legal Aid Society in Bronx County. In 2004, she established the Law Offices of Deidra R. Moore, P.C. Her work is deeply informed by her personal and professional experiences.
